What’s more, the best way to keep your leather seat covers

Maintenance for Leather:
- Cleaning your leather seats is essential. This
must be done on a regular basis to keep up with the maintenance aspect of your
leather. Certain cleaning agents should be used to clean the dust and stains on
the leather surface. Avoid any bacterial or garbage contaminants as these could
cause erosion damage to the leather seats. Be sure to keep the seats dry and
- Do not soak your seats. Some leather seat car
owners will not clean their seats regularly and then will soak their seats to
get the stains and dirt out. This will not benefit the material in the long
run. You will quickly notice damage to the leather and abrasions.
- Keep away from heat sources. While leather seat
covers can be compatible with heated seats, long term exposure can cause
damage. Be mindful of using this feature with your leather seat covers. Long
term exposure can cause cracks in the seats. Also, avoid exposing the leather
to too much sun as this will cause the material to fade.
- Ingeniously, faltliquoring. Yes, this sounds
like a crazy word but, it’s a real thing. Faltliquoring is a process that
involves using oil on the leather after tannage but prior to the leather
drying. This process is usually used for light leathers and coats the fibers of
the material to keep them in- tact.
